... yup.

BTW, I directly edited pres.js -- the entries look like
user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1/Slackware
user_pref("general.useragent.vendor", "Slackware");
user_pref("general.useragent.vendorSub", "13.37");
(And, yes, I do know you're not supposed to do that)
I tried it this way too.

Here's a thing:
shut down firefox (or Seamonkey), really, shut it down before you do this
cd .mozilla/firefox
cd whatever.default
vi prerfs.js
<append this to the end of the file -- doesn't matter, it'll work -- one long line>
user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:11.0) Gecko/2012314 Firefox/17.0.1 Slackware Linux");
<save and exit>
Do the same thing for Seamonkey, changing the line to
user_pref("general.useragent.override", "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:11.0) Gecko/20120314 Firefox/11.0 Seamonkey/2.14 Slackware Linux");
Then restart Firefox or Seamonkey and go to to see the result -- ought to look something like this:
Your User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0.1 Slackware Linux

Your IP Address:
Merry Christmas and Hope this helps some.
